My Reading Relationship with J. R. R. Tolkien (Guest Post by Ashley)

Tolkien Reading Event 2019

Every year on March 25, the anniversary of the Downfall of Sauron, the Tolkien Society hosts Tolkien Reading Day. This year’s theme is Tolkien and the Mysterious. The primary goal is to promote the reading of the works of J.R R. Tolkien! To celebrate, Pages Unbound will be hosting two weeks of Tolkien-related posts. In addition to our own thoughts, we will be featuring guest posts and interviews!

The first book by J.R.R. Tolkien that I read was The Hobbit, and I was in middle school when I read it. I think I might have been in sixth grade. I remember absolutely loving it and how different it was than anything I had ever read before. It’s a book that I’ve read more than once. The second book that I read by J.R.R. Tolkien was The Lord of the Rings and I read it in seventh grade. You might be thinking, “How did you read a 1,216 page book in seventh grade?” Well, when you’ve always been reading above your grade level, a 1,216 page book is no big deal. I loved The Lord of the Rings just as much as The Hobbit. They’re books that take you on an adventure. I also love Middle Earth (well most of it anyway). I’m also ashamed to say that those are the only two books by J.R.R. Tolkien that I have read so far. Yes, I definitely plan on reading more of his works in the future, but from what I’ve read I would say that I have a great relationship with reading Tolkien. I know some of his books are quite lengthy, but I’ve never had a problem reading big books. I welcome the challenge.
